There is a release usually behind the seat that has to be pulled in order to push it physically. make sure that the release is pushed in for the forward/reverse to work.

Lost reverse. Goes forward just fine. It has no codes. I am sure it is not a hydro problem more like electrical. Any Ideas?


you may receive more help if you list the manufacturer, model, and details such as it is a hydrostat, engine size (18 HP or 22 horse briggs motor). also describe your symptoms a little more as in: it ran fine last week then today when I started mowing it just didn't want move in reverse, or was mowing when it just quit working.Hope this helps.

Gt 245 lawn tractor won't go forward or backward


Check the drive belts first. and make sure the hydro release lever is in the correct position. If it is not- you can push the lawn tractor and have the rear wheels turn. It sometimes doubles as a "Forward" "Neutral" "Reverse" lever on other brands of lawn tractor.

The belts should be in their guides and pulley grooves- check to make sure it does not have a hidden break by having the engine off, and pulling on the belt.

Lastly, check to make sure the hydro itself is not out of oil or low on oil. It uses low viscosity "HyGard" oil. Capacity if you drain the old oil out and refill is 4.6 quarts. Look for a leak if the level is low.

If it still does not move, make sure the levers are set so you are in forward motion positions, and push- if the rear wheels move there is a problem in the hydro unit.

I have a L118 John Deere mower. When cold, the mower moves forward and reverse without problems. I mow my 1/2 acre yard and at the last couple passes, the mower barely moves forward and has no reverse. ...


Hi, remove the battery and battery support tray and clean all debris from around the hydrostatic drive, fan and cooling fins. Your problem is caused by the hydrostatic drive overheating. Hope this helps, regards Phil

17.5 hp 42" deck Sears tractor. Parked it in the shed after last mowing, everything was fine. Went to mow yesterday and tractor will not drive plus I have no brake....what happened? Belts are fine, gear...


If the engine is running normally and your drive belt is fine then the input to the transmission is OK you just have no power output from the transmission. Usually those transmissions give you some signs of failure such as won't go up inclines or the top speed is a bit low. What I would do is first check the linkage from the forward/reverse lever to make sure it is moving a corresponding shaft on the transmission itself. If that is good then I would check the fluid level on the transmission itself. This could well require removing it from the tractor. Often the brake pedal is connected to a small disc on the transmission. While you are checking the shifter input to the transmission, you may want to follow the brake pedal rod back and see if anything is broken or disconnected.
